Bina Brianca knock-off

bina brianca wrap knock-off

Let me preface this post by saying that even though this piece looks fairly easy to make, I think it is very difficult to get the fit juuuust right. There’s a reason why the original is selling like hot cakes because fitting this at home is a challenge!

I heard about the Bina Brianca (or Bina Bianca as I often call it…that “r” in there is just so difficult for me to remember) wrap a while ago through Pinterest and this blog. I read the tutorial and it looked fairly easy, so I figured it shouldn’t be that difficult to sew.  Continue reading Bina Brianca knock-off

baby activity pillow

This is a recap of one of my first sewing projects: a baby activity pillow. It rustles when you touch it only so slightly which makes it a great baby gift. I used some fluffy fabric and a different patterned cotton fabric to make a nice 9-patch.

The front and back of the pillow are the same but you could also just make it one solid fabric.
